is up -- obama over romney 8 points in virginia and his approval rating at 50% now. the highest it has been in quite a while. and this was before "mother jones" published the video of mitt romney's comments in front of that fund raiser on may 17th i think in boca raton. adam is the reporter for "mother jones" who released the video. jenny is in la port indiana. hi, jenny. >> caller: yes, i am. i would like to make a fairly quick comment. i just heard obama is up 5 points. my concern is it is not moving fast enough. and i'm shocked at the arrogance and the contempt that mitt romney has shown for -- for the public -- for americans, and his -- he is really only concerned with the millionaires, and i can't understand for the life of me how senior citizens in florida and people -- how they -- how they can vote for him, i -- i just can't understand it. aside from that, aside from all of this, i think it's pretty scary, and very frightening to think that there is a -- a horrible possibility that he could get elected. >> bill: all right. jenny. i appreciate the call. thanks
